Today I’m exhausted. You know the kind, it settles deep into your bones, and makes your eyes heavy. On days like this I remind myself that it’s perfectly ok to be tired. That it’s ok to rest, just don’t stop. And while I could feel guilty about pushing the pause button I’m not going to. I’m of no help to my horses if I can’t muster the energy to be there for them 100% of the way.
Today I’m resting. Tomorrow I’ll start fresh and keep moving forward. And that’s perfectly ok.
And when I feel the panic settling in, that voice whispering that I haven’t done enough that I’ll never be enough, I’ll take a deep breath. I’ll pause and remind myself that big goals take time. That they’re not the result of individual great or bad days, but the collective sum of the effort I’ve been putting in.
Big things await. I’ll rest now, wake up tomorrow and keep heading towards them.
